15th Annual Linda Carney Rotary Cares Celebrity Challenge

Click here to download the pledge form.

A goal of $300 per entry is encouraged. Bring your pledges to our registration desk at the Brennan Park Rec Center on race day.

You can ride seriously or in costume pulling a trailer full of bolders. It’s all up to you!

Funds raised go into the Linda Carney Rotary Cares Fund which helps families in our community who require financial assistance with health related problems that are not covered by other sources of medical funding. Over the past 11 years the fund has purchased motorized wheelchairs, hydraulic lifts, drugs and supplies as well as provide funding for renovations to homes to allow easier access.

The event itself is a fun event and can be a family event as well. There are trophies awarded for the more competitive riders and biggest fundraiser, but the greatest reward is knowing you’ve helped to make someone’s life a little easier.
